Unit 2: Explore and Inquire

The Most Disturbing Things

Nails scratching across a chalkboard?  Mice hiding in your cupboards?  Horror movies?  
What are issues, events, or situations that you find disturbing? 

  • Have a look through the local newspaper.  
  • Search for real life stories or events that you find disturbing.  
  • Make a list of these things.

Draft a paragraph or two describing the reasons why you find one thing so troubling.
